Pennys Challenge 91 - Sparkle and Shine

I have made this card for my daughter Hayley who will be 21 on 3rd September but have followed our theme over at Pennys Challenges this week
 which is
 Sparkle and Shine 
My sparkle is the pearls and my shine is the glossy accents that I have used on the olives to make them look wet and shiny.

We are sponsored this week by 
Prize - $10 voucher to use in store

Prize - 4 Digis of winners choice 

Prize - 4 Digis of winners choice
so hop over and join in HERE if you can this week 

I started by making the easel card after punching the edges with a Martha Stewart punch and used some pretty paper from Nitwits Sunshine Laughter set on the base and front panel. I then went round the edge of the paper with some pearl flowers I bought from The Hobby House whilst I was at the Newbury craft show. I also added a single pearl right in the corners of the pretty edging.

The image I have used is called Martini and is by our lovely sponsor Sassy Studio Designs.
I have coloured with the  following Copics to colour the image. E0000, E50, E41, E42, E43, C00, R20, BG11 and G21. 

I have also used my alphabet and number set which was designed to be used in an impress machine which were not very poopular so I picked up the alphabet and number set really cheap and just use the dies in my Big Shot.

The digi 21st sentiment circle was a freebie from Annette also known as Nettys Cards, thanks for the freebies Annette!

I have also used Spellbinders circle and scalloped circle nesties and a tag from Fancy Tags 2 to create the stopper on the base which I also added pearls to.

I have added some lacy corners on the base too, these were cut using a Cheery Lynn die.
